Make sure your character name is Genre Appropriate. Make sure if it's a Historical Fiction novel or takes place in a real time period that the name was used then. Or if it's a fictionalized place then you can be as creative as you wish.
Just have fun with naming your character. It is after all your story.

Origin: (English (Modern), Old English)
Pronunciation: (KING-zlee, KINGZ-lee)
Kingsley is a surname which is on one of my surname posts but recently I have been posting surnames I had as first names, Ex. Ramsey, Maelum. I think Kingsley is a cool name but it might be better as a middle name or surname. The meaning is nice and the name seems strong.
I try to have the most accurate Meanings, Origin and Pronunciations for the names on this blog. It is best though to do research into the names you decide to use for your characters as there can be errors on my blog. Or meanings, origins, and pronunciations I have not seen thus not been able to add to this blog.
Try some of the leading Baby Name Sites and Baby Name or Character Naming books as well.
